What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Following yestaerday's information that my ex had been transferring money to his brothers account and paid £9,500 on a credit card bill I have today found out that he has also brought a house- paid £130,000 in November.We haven't had the fdr hearing yet- due probably in March.What does this mean for me? He has not contributed to his joint mortgage for 18 months or paid a penny towards his two severely disabled young adults or son at uni

Did he disclose the property on his form E or that he was planning to buy it?

He may have got the ppty cheap so get a joint valuation of the property and in the Questionnaire ask for a copy of his mortgage application + all documents submitted with it

Thanks Attila-
No there was no disclosure- neither I or the solicitor/barrister knew until we got the questionaire responses yesterday.He apparently brought the property on Nov 12th but made no mention on the 3rd dec(2nd hearing)
Can we still ask for all these things even through apparently the absolute was granted in July (although I haven't received any paperwork)
I feel quite sick to think that whilst he was standing up in another court and urging the mortgage company to repossess a property that has been adapted for 2 severely disabled children he has secretly brought another house.
Many thanks.
Lindy

Sorry I cannot offer any advise, Lindy Lou but just had to say I feel for you. I really cannot understand these men who have little or no regard for their children. Where we cannot think of anything other than how all this effects our children; the men seem so self-centred that they are blinkered to what their behaviour is doing to others that should be a large part of their lives.

You have to believe that justice will be done in the end. I know it is of little help and comfort now, but, you can hold your head up high knowing you will always have the moral highground if nothing else.

You say the children are in fact young adults, but surely owing to their disabilities different rules must apply. Could you not get legal aid for them in their own right to fight to keep the house?

Hope things work out for you!

All the best, Sarah x

P.S. Yes, I know it is not just the men who can act like this, I know there are some of us females who are not wonderful pillars of society or family life either.
